An agricultural revolution or agrarian revolution is a period of transition from a pre-agricultural period characterized by a Paleolithic diet, into an agricultural period characterized by a diet of cultivated foods; or a further transition from a living form of agriculture into a more advanced and more productive form of agriculture, resulting in further social changes. Examples of historical agricultural revolutions includethe Neolithic, Arab and British.
